For those in the UK, the GF1 seems to be making a comeback for Christmas, I spotted it in a local well known high street photo shop. Fitted with the 14-42mm lens for £299. For a short while, the price rocketed to ridiculous levels, then dissapeared as stocks ran out. There may be newer models out there but the GF1 is still a cracker, without having to spend a fortune. I would also like to bet, most would be hard pressed to tell the difference in picture quality.......... Most of the 'supposed' improvements have (in my opinion) been retrograde anyway. The GX1 looks to be a reasonable upgrade, but I am still waiting for an L1 lookalike in m43 format to appear.
